A friend in Ozone Park, NY sent this out to our E mail group asking "Name this bug" (He don’t know either, it was in front of his house he says). I’ve scoured your site and BugGuide without success (I’m totally clicked out). I’ve accused Bob of having his young daughter paint the bug to throw us off the scent. When I check "Beetles" they have 6 legs, same with flys, etc. etc. but this one only has 4 legs. Dragonfly? No luck there either, I’m perplexed in California. Robert teGroen

Hi Robert,
This pretty little moth is the Ailanthus Webworm.
